S63 Transmission Question

Just took delivery of a 2018 S63 Sedan in Stuttgart and had it shipped back to California. Car now has 900 miles on it and I have noticed since day one a certain hesitation combined with a subtle jerk when driving away from a stop, and during the first-second gear shift, as well as when slowing down to a halt. Any comments/feedback much appreciated. Previously had two W222 S550 sedans, neither of which exhibited that trait. I realize of course the '18 is a different engine and a new transmission. Nonetheless, seems not right to me. Thanks.

The 2018 E63 has the same transmission and some people are having the same problem - see this thread

I have a 2018 s63 sedan and have not experienced any of those issues. I have about 1200 mies on my car at this point.

S63
When it's cold here in Buffalo, it happens to mine too when in "S" mode. Does NOT in "C" mode though. Once the car warms up, it stops.

Comes standard with the AMG E63 and S63s.

Interesting. I would think the MB engineers would make a smoother operating transmission. It really is not a smooth operation in the lower gears for slowly accelerating in normal traffic and coming to a stop. I'm learning to live with it and putting it in Sport mode seems to lessen it a bit. The car is amazing except for this MCT transmission issue for me.
